distillation of memory

Bathing in someone else's tub, an uncommon luxury
proffered graciously, accepted gratefully.

Hot water and bubbles that shimmer, piled high
above smooth white porcelain walls

and perched on one side, a blue soap
in the shape of a baby dinosaur, smiling.


  1. Beautiful. If only I had a nice bathtub I would take a bath...

  2. I love the title and the little soap, the little detail at the end.
